Buy My Volvo Commercial Makes Convincing Case

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

After all, it's not every day that you can buy a car with Hepatitis B and a haunted backseat for the low, low cost of one really long Xbox.

Buy My Volvo In September of last year, Luke Aker impressed the hell out of pretty much everybody by delivering a ridiculously-well-done commercial for his 1996 Maxima GLE beater. So impressive was Aker’s effort to make his POS look like a piece of art that Nissan opted to buy the Maxima for the original asking price of $1,400 and donate an additional $1,000 to a charity of his choice Aker went with Wounded Warrior). This precedent begs the question: will Volvo do the same in response to the ridiculous “Buy My Volvo” ad directed by Swede/genius Christoffer Castor for his 1993 Volvo 245GL ? In the description beneath the YouTube video above, Castor describes his Volvo as: “Red. Five owners before me. Complete service journal by Volvo up until in 2009. Inspected until November 30. New battery and radiator. Summer and winter tires.” Castor says that the 1993 Volvo 245GL can be yours for 7,500 Swedish Kronas (or $1,143 USD), or “in exchange for a really long Xbox.” I’m not sure what the hell a “really long Xbox is,” but if you have one of those and are looking for a 20-year-old Volvo (and happen to be living somewhere near Malmö, Sweden), then you are in luck. Why else should you want to buy this old-ass Volvo? Here’s a brief list:

  • It is “a masterpiece of kinetic energy”
  • “Cold hurled and forged in spotless tweed”
  • John Woo doves
  • Cat decals
  • You will be perceived as “rich and cuddly
  • “Pure Renegade”
  • Haunted backseatHexen
  • It was in the game Hexen
  • He asked nicely

So what do you get for $1,143 bucks/one long Xbox? The 1993 Volvo 245GL pictured in the video above comes equipped with:

  • Inside and an outside
